One great use of the Kaltura platform is to create in one swoop all the sources you need for html5 video playback.
In order to do this you will need a Kaltura account (get free trial with 10GB and ask for HTML5 encodings)
Once your account is set up with HTML5 encodings, each video you upload will be converted to VP8, Ogg Theora and H264 (as well as FLV in multipile bitrates). The video you uploaded is called a Kaltura "entry" and the various encodings of this video are called "flavors".
You use these flavors as your <source>s like this:
<video height=270” width=”480” poster=”url_to_your_poster_image” controls autoplay>

Note: the “00” that appears after one of the “replace_with_your_kaltura_partner_id” is required.
